TIA Sets 2013 CTS Instructor Training Schedule

The Tire Industry Association announced the 2013 schedule for the Certified Commercial Tire Service Instructor Training classes in Denver and Baltimore.

TIA said its Certified CTS Program exceeds the minimum training requirements established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and includes all aspects of truck tire and wheel service, including OSHA regulations, mounting/demounting/inflation, torque, puncture repair, balancing, road service and much more. The CTS Instructor course combines classroom and hands-on demonstrations, giving the students the tools and knowledge they will need to impart that information on their tire service technicians.

“This is a great way for commercial tire dealers and fleets to conduct all of their technician training in-house and receive the benefits that TIA certification provides,” said Kevin Rohlwing, senior vice president of training. “It also gives them the flexibility to hold training classes when they are the most convenient so normal operations are not interrupted. The train-the-trainer model has been very successful over the past 16 years mainly because it allows the dealers and fleets to comply with OSHA regulations and establish a qualified workforce without the need for extended travel.”

Baltimore classes, held at the Community College of Baltimore County in Catonsville, Md., will be March 19-22, April 23-26 and Dec. 3-6. Denver classes, held at Lincoln College of Technology in Aurora, Colo., are set for Feb. 26-March 1, Sept. 24-27 and Oct. 15-18.
